Born in Amsterdam in 1935, Suzanne Mehler Whiteley saw the ravages of war through a child's eyes. Her memoir, written in the voice of a young girl, describes the years before the invasion of Holland, her experiences during the German occupation, her time spent in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, and her childhood afterward in Europe and then the United States. Appel Is Forever describes in a child's words atrocities that should never be seen by anyone. Through young Suzanne's introspection, readers are invited to see beyond the history of events to their deeper meaning. We come to see how the miracle of having survived opens a child up to the potential for playfulness and even happiness, while a young girl's observations of coming to her new country remind us of both the promises and hardships of the American dream.

A modern day love story about a couple named Zeke and Legs. Zeke sprung from a world filled with danger and secrets. He was raised by two parents that instilled strong moral values in him. Zeke instead began to favor the excitement of the street life. Legs, on the other hand, was a stunning beauty from a loving family that fell victim to the negative trappings of urban life. Their paths crossed as they were beginning to live a normal life. Legs and Zeke fell madly in love in only a short time. Their lust and desire for each became a priority. They decided to marry when a child was on the way. This began the drama that was their life. Keep an open mind as you relive their lives.The story is written with truth and detailed accounts of the many events that took place. They both found God and sought redemption through Jesus the Christ. Don't let the discomfort of their acts deter you from reading their entire story. Remember; they had to live through it too! The real heroes of the story are God and Christ; consequently, without the resurrecting power of the almighty their lives may have remained lost. I suggest you keep a Bible close by; just as I did while writing the story.

The 1990s were years of turmoil and transformation in American work experiences and employment relationships. Trends including the growth of contingent labor, the erosion of the stable employment contract, the restructuring of jobs and companies, and the emergence of opportunity-enhancing employee participation programs reconfigured occupations, career paths, and labor market opportunities. Vicki Smith analyzes this shift, asking how workers navigated their way across the divide between bad jobs and good jobs, between jobs organized hierarchically and jobs requiring greater worker involvement, and between temporary and stable work.Crossing the Great Divide uses original case study data from four diverse organizational settings around the country. Smith compares the situations of nonunionized, white-collar workers at a photocopy service firm; unionized blue-collar workers in a wood-products processing factory; temporary assemblers and clerical workers in a high-tech firm; and unemployed managers, technical workers, and professionals participating in a job search club. The very different experiences revealed in Crossing the Great Divide highlight the way diverse new relationships between companies and their employees play out in workplaces, where new forms of work organization simultaneously create opportunity, instability, and risk for workers. Smith's goal is to construct a new framework of employment that accommodates the unpredictability and turbulence of the 21st century, but that is also "characterized at its core by attachment, reward, protection, commitment, and dignity."

An exhilarating conversion story of a devout Baptist who relates how he overcame his hostility to the Catholic Church by a combination of serious Bible study and vast research of the writings of the early Church Fathers. In addition to a moving account of their conversion that caused Ray and his wife to "cross the Tiber" to Rome, he offers an in-depth treatment of Baptism and the Eucharist in Scripture and the ancient Church. Thoroughly documented with hundreds of footnotes, this contains perhaps the most complete compilation of biblical and patristic quotations and commentary available on Baptism and the Eucharist, as well as a detailed analysis of Sola Scriptura and Tradition.

The first three standalone novels in the USA Today bestselling Forever series are available in one volume! "One of my favorite love stories, ever." -- Brittany and Biana Blab Books "Deanna Roy has crafted a remarkable story about love, loss, and moving forward." -- Burning Impossibly Bright Blog "A love you wish everyone could experience." -- Book Drunk Blog "Different from any other new adult book." -- Head Stuck in a Book "I am stunned." -- 2 Bookaholics "A very emotional read." -- Her Juicy Reads "Touching and tender." -- Vicci's Crazy Book Addiction FOREVER INNOCENT A Top 100 Book "Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again." Corabelle doesn't feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned. Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction. When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can't resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she'll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent. BOOK 2: FOREVER LOVED "Delivered with sensitivity, brutal honesty, emotional scenes, and an everlasting hope that love can conquer all." -- Hesperia Loves Books "Did I cry? Oh yeah, but not for the same reasons as before. Will this book stay on my shelf for years to come! You betcha!" -- 2 Bookaholics "READ it, IT IS WORTH IT." -- Book Addicts Not So Anonymous "It is definitely heartwarming to see their story resolve the way it did." -- Lovin Los Libros After four long years of separation, Gavin has finally reunited with his childhood love Corabelle. She’s forgiven him for leaving her during the funeral of their seven-day-old baby, and also for where he ended up — in Mexico to get a vasectomy. But a message from Rosa, a prostitute he met the day of his surgery, brings his life to a crashing halt. She claims Gavin has fathered a son, now three years old and living with her cousin in Ensenada. He doesn’t know if he can trust Rosa, who never mentioned the boy before, or if his delicate reconciliation with Corabelle can withstand the shock if it is true. Corabelle believes their future together is the right thing despite their past. But when she learns of this other child, the one thing she lost long ago and might never have again with Gavin, Corabelle’s faith that her life will ever follow her old dream is shattered. To make things right for Gavin and his son, she just might have to let go of the only person she always believed would be her forever love. Forever Loved is the heart-wrenching conclusion to Gavin and Corabelle's passionate story. BOOK 3: FOREVER SHELTERED "Hooked me from Chapter 1." -- Fire and Ice Book Reviews "Put this on your TBR list and bump it to the top." -- Eat Sleep Read Blog "Intriguing, romantic, funny, and emotional." -- Bibliolatry Me Book Blog "Make an appointment to visit Dr. Darion and Tina for your next reading therapy. They have a cure for the hopeless romantic." -- Michel, Smut Book Junkie Tina would rather sew up her girl parts with dental floss than go on a second date with a man. She's been dumped enough to know not to get attached. But when Dr. Darion Marks comes into her art therapy room to ask a favor for a special patient, Tina recognizes the haunted look he buries beneath his stoic professionalism. So rather than be forced to ditch the handsome doctor after a single night, she decides not to date him at all. So how exactly DO they end up half-naked in Surgical Suite B? Dr. Darion has a lot to hide. His baby sister is the only family he has left, and he’s not leaving her treatment to some incompetent hack. But now he’s breaking every hospital rule imaginable. He lied about his sister so he can manage her care, and now he’s banging the art therapy teacher between patient rounds like a fraternity boy at a keg party. Nobody believes this can end well, not Tina’s friend Corabelle, who is overcoming a tragic history much like Tina’s, or even pink-haired Jenny, who thinks sex with strangers is good for your metabolism. But Dr. Darion and Tina have one thing going for them – a fierce passion for each other that just might obliterate all their doubts, and solve all their problems. Forever Sheltered includes many favorite characters from Forever Innocent and Forever Loved, as well as the much-anticipated wedding of Gavin and Corabelle.

Neufundland, 1919: Die beiden Flieger Jack Alcock und Arthur Brown unternehmen den ersten Nonstopflug über den Atlantik mit Kurs Irland. Dublin, 1845: Der schwarzamerikanische Abolitionist Frederick Douglass reist durch das von Hungersnot gepeinigte Irland, wo die Leute schlimmer leiden als unter der Sklaverei. New York, 1998: US-Senator George Mitchell verlässt seine junge Frau und sein erst wenige Tage altes Baby, um in Belfast die Nordirischen Friedensgespräche zu einem unsicheren Abschluss zu führen. «Transatlantik» verwebt drei ikonische historische Momente mit dem Schicksal dreier Frauen: Angefangen mit der irischen Hausmagd Lily Duggan, in der Frederick Douglass die Liebe zur Freiheit weckt, folgt der Roman ihrer Tochter Emily und ihrer Enkelin Lottie in die USA und, später, zurück auf die Insel. Ihr Leben spiegelt den Verlauf der bewegten Nationalgeschichte Irlands und Amerikas. Dabei spielt ein vergessener, über drei Generationen nicht geöffneter Brief eine entscheidende Rolle. «Transatlantik» ist ein kraftvolles Epos über die Kollision von Geschichte und persönlichem Schicksal – geschrieben mit unvergleichlicher dichterischer Intensität, mit leuchtenden Szenen und klingender Sprache.

Wonder about the world of our great-great-grandchildren? This is the third episode of FOREVER YOUNG, a climate fiction/hard science fiction novel in 4 episodes set 200 years from now. Life on earth is headed for extinction and society is divided between the ultra-rich and the rest who suffer the full onslaught of climate change and pollution. Part One explores the costly Age Prevention Programme (APP) and what it means to belong to it...or remain outside – for Alice, a lovely Swiss nurse, for ambitious Lizzie, a talented golf player, the descendant of the mythical Tiger Woods, and for adventurous Jamie, a brilliant reporter for the World and US Post. Part Two, "The Immortality Trip" is the name given to the project to transport a contingent of One Percenters to the nearest liveable exoplanet and settle it. Will Jamie, Lizzie and Alice be able to board that trip? Part Three, “The Hibernation Party” introduces the other option opened to One Percenters to survive extinction: take refuge on Antarctica, the last virgin continent. Jamie discovers the dangers of this option when Gary Trude, the head of the Hibernation Party , a despot with Hitler’s dangerous ambitions, threatens him and his friends. Can they escape from Gary Trude? The novel - classified as both a "hard" science fiction and a climate fiction novel - interweaves several plot lines. The first chronicles the love triangle between Alice, Lizzie, and Jamie. The second covers the only two options left to save humanity, both reserved to One Percenters: one, escape to another pristine planet, a thousand light years away; the other, retreat to Antarctica, the last virgin continent. A ruthless rivalry develops between those who aim to stay on Earth and those bent on escaping to another world. The third follows the murderous attempts of one determined 99 Percenter, Ernie, a retired Blue Beret who is hell-bent on carving a place for himself in the Age Prevention Program. NOTE TO THE READER: This book follows the model of serialized novels, like Hugh Howey's best-selling WOOL , and is published in four separate parts, each self-standing. It is however preferable to read them in order as follows: Part One: Gateway to Forever Part Two: The Immortality Trip Part Three: The Hibernation Party Part Four: The Longevity Gene An omnibus edition with all four parts also exists.

Acclaimed for her 1928 novel A Lantern in Her Hand, Bess Streeter Aldrich became one of the most widely read interpreters of the prairie pioneer experience. In 1935, she published her masterpiece, Spring Came on Forever, a novel of two Nebraska pioneer families from settlement to the 1930s. Elsewhere an artist of the romance, here Aldrich turns romance on its head. The heroine is Amalia Holmsdorfer, one of a band of German immigrants who settle on the prairie. From her late teens to her mid-eighties she confronts and defeats the forces of nature and society that discourage or ruin others. Her life might be a modest triumph but for one detail: she married the wrong man. Quickly paced and precisely drawn, this novel is Aldrich's greatest tribute to the complexity, humor, endurance, and intelligence of the people who settled the prairie. Whatever its sentiments, it has as many cutting edges as a buzz saw.
